K11 Inside Out, Casting-On in the Center with Laura Barker
Friday, May 1 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Turf Valley – Belmont Room
Some projects are worked best from the inside out. The pinhole cast-on is perfect for when just a few stitches are needed at the very center of a project. The provisional cord cast-on (PCCO), creates stitches directly onto your needle(s) for working in both directions. Judy’s magic cast-on is truly magic and may often replace the PCCO and other cast-ons. The crochet cast-on, for lefties and righties, is very versatile. Skill level: Intermediate (has completed projects and has proficiency). Maximum number of students: 15. Students should bring: 40 yards of light-colored worsted/aran yarn, and appropriately sized circular needles and crochet hook. Homework: None.
Class Code: K11. Class Fee: $55. Materials Fee: None.
